Miniscal History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Miniscal name is derived from the word "maniscalco," meaning "marshall," from medieval Latin mariscalcus, marescalcus; as such it was likely an occupational name.

Early Origins of the Miniscal family


The surname Miniscal was first found in Bergamo in Lombardy, capital of the province of Bergamo, home to the Romanesque church of S.Maria Maggiore that is filled with fine art. The Piazza Garibaldi has notable architecture. From 1264 it was under Milan, but in 1428 it became Venetian. In those ancient times only persons of rank, the podesta, clergy, city officials, army officers, artists, landowners were entered into the records. To be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry.
